Sunset Lodge at Dover Bay
Atop Dover Bay in the upscale residential community of North Nanaimo, ‘Sunset Lodge at Dover Bay’ enjoys phenomenal views of Georgia Strait, Texada Island and the Sunshine Coast with the Coastal Mountains rising in the distance. A ten minute walk through this gorgeous, quiet neighborhood will take you to Invermere/Rafter Park and a nature path to beach access. A ten minute drive will take you to everything else including a boat launch and some of the best shore accessed cold water scuba diving sites in the world. There are basketball courts and a playground across the street, tennis courts down the block.
The Great Room has floor to ceiling plus apex windows overlooking Dover Bay. Enjoy your favorite beverage on the deck at the view counter, mesmerized by the 180 degree ocean view. Observe eagles and hawks soaring, deer frolicking below and a myriad of marine activity that may include dolphins, orca, sea lions and seals. Cruise ships and boats frequent the strait. As the sun finally sets (after 9:30 pm in the summer) you will be treated to an extraordinary sky: never the same one, but always spectacular-- have your camera ready. Bring your telescope or use our telescope binoculars and/or spotting scope and experience the Pacific Northwest starry sky. We have seen the Aurora Borealis from the deck. Spotting scope and/or telescope binoculars available upon request.
While you are enjoying the view, the kids are happily occupied in the large recreation room playing ping pong, Wii video games or watching a movie. The very little ones can amuse themselves with Thomas the Tank trains/track and other preschool toys. Please let us know if you would like to use these items.
Prepare meals in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen complete with bar prep sink. The gas BBQ is on the deck. There are two casual areas to dine: at the huge granite island counter in the large kitchen or in the breakfast nook. The formal dining room seats 8 comfortably.
Don’t feel like cooking but don’t feel like going out? There are many restaurants in the area that will deliver. Or, for a special celebration, let us arrange a scrumptious, gourmet dinner catered and served in the dining room.
Relax in the ‘cozy’ room, our small paperback and games library or use the desk in the downstairs Sunset Suite to write your novel.

Why Lisa Maddox chose Nanaimo
Vancouver Island is absolutely paradise! We were so fortunate to find this unique home atop a hill and overlooking the Georgia Strait, within walking distance to the beach. We wanted a magnificent home to host our very large family for vacations and special holidays. We cherish the many memorable occasions we've had at Sunset Lodge and we would spend all our time here if we could!
What makes this house unique
The phenomenal views from the balcony deck are absolutely mesmerizing. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck, taking in the view and enjoying your favourite beverage.
